Before starting the pump, make sure that:
- the voltage and frequency specified on the pump’s data plate coincide with those of theavailable power supply;
- there are no signs of damage to the pump or its power cord;
- the electric connection is made in a dry place, protected against any risk of flooding;
- the electric system is complete with a residual current circuit-breaker (I ∆ ≤ 30 mA) and an efficient earthing connection;
- Any extension cords must comply with the requirements for electric safety.
In case of wells or if the pump is installed above the water level (above head), fill the pump casing and suction hose with clean water before starting the pump for the first time. Filling must be performed slowly until the water overflows; wait a few seconds to make sure that all the air has escaped and top up until the level has stabilized. If the pump is installed below the water level (below head), bleed the air from the pump casing by opening the filler cap. The pump will fill with water independently. Plug the pump into the socket, start the pump and wait for the water to exit. If water has not exited within 2-3 minutes from when the pump was switched on, turn the pump off and repeat the filling operation again.
We recommend you read the instruction manual of the MultiInox (also available in our DNA software) for useful information for use, maintenance and installation.

The pump has protection against dry operation (anti-dry-run). In the absence of water, the pump switches off automatically after about 45 seconds. This is indicated by the red “Alarm” LED. To reactivate the pump, press the RESET key, after having restored the correct water flow. If the alarm status remains, or if the user does not intervene by restoring the flow of water and resetting the pump, the automatic reset will try to restart the pump after one hour, after 5 hours, after 20 hours, and then once every 24 hours. From the first intervention of the dry-running protection and until the pump resumes regular operation, the electronic display continues to signal the lack of water: red LED flashing with cycles of a flash and a pause. To reactivate the pump, press the RESET key, after having restored the correct water flow. The electronic display is set up to indicate other states:
Green Led (Power) lit: The pump is connected to the mains and is ready to supply water (as soon as a tap is turned on).
Yellow Led (Pump on) lit: the pump is supplying water.
Red Led (Alarm) flashing with cycles of 1 flash: the pump is not running due to lack of water in the suction line, the protection programme for dry running has been activated.
